investigation. >> and it seems like this would present other problems because scotland yard questioning her, arresting rebekah brooks and yet scotland yards is being investigated because of their inappropriate relations with this media empire. >> well, that's just it. a lot of people are asking just how close were reporters at "news of the world" with police because of new revelations that a former "news of the world" deputy editor was a communication consultant for the police at the same time that he seemed to be reporting back to news international. so there is a lot -- it's a big tangled web here of police contacts, reporters at "news of the world," not to mention high-level politics. remember rebekah brooks was the same person that wine and dined political figures for the murdoch family. that's what makes this arrest so fascinating. she's the highest profile arrest so far. every arrest it seems to have gotten closer and closer to the murdoch family. this is the closest arrest yet. >> okay. thanks so much from london. >>> back to that investigation after an assassination taking place in

, and that company is involved with bribing foreign officials, that being detectives at scotland yard, it's a violation of that act. we most frequently see that act being prosecuted with companies opening up plants or supply lines in third world countries and the brother of a prince or son-in-law of a queen gets a contract, basically a bribe, something that's prosecuted here mostly with large corporations doing things like that, but the facts do fit for news corp., if they bribed people at scotland yard to prosecute them in the u.s. >> how serious is the violation of a foreign practices act, something the sort of thing that could have more problems for a company? >> could have more problems, people could go to jail depending on how high you can show there was authorization to violate the act, but the corporation could be put into a monitorship for a period of time as we've seen with wall street companies over the years. they could actually make the company -- have the company lose its charter if they wanted to, but i'd like to move away from the criminal for a second, our federal communic
. earlier, fionnuala sweeney spoke with rose gentle in scotland. her son was killed in iraq. >> i'm quite happy that that trsh newspaper is going to be shut down. will he open another paper up? >> reporter: what do you think should be done if these allegations are proven? >> if they're proven, they should go to court. everybody responsible should be put in front of a judge and if they're guilty, they should be sentenced. >> what would you like to say to those responsible? >> i would like to know why they felt they needed to hack my phone when it was concerning my son, i had lost a season. >> the outrage of the "news of the world" phone hacking is likely to be felt by other papers. >> the guardian first broke the news of the illegal hacking by "news of the world." richard quest spoke with michael white, assistant editor of "the guardian" newspaper. he sa >> i think rupert murdoch or james murdoch, his son, who runs the show in this country, has attempted to sacrifice the "news of the world" in order to safe the bskyb bed and to save rebecca brooks. why rebecca brooks? why shouldn't she be
with members of parliament questioning members of scotland yard. but why would they at the end? because murdoch has a business deal pending that is worth billions of dollars and eventually he wants the parliament's cooperation to buy bskyb. so it would jeopardize possibly his buying of that corporation. >> yes, indeed. and it seems that senior police officers wither in the pay of rupert murdoch, so it is possible that rupert murdoch not only seduced the politicians, but also the police? >> well, they were accuse of that today, and senior investigator tos at scotland yard, and they vigorously denied those charge, but they did open up the door on the possibility that police officers at a lower level were paid for news tips, and it does seem as if there is evidence out there that that was a common practice at least that is what is being alleged right now, it was a common practice of "news of the world" and perhaps other publications belonging to rupert murdoch, but investigators today vehemently denying that there was a conspiracy behind their investigation or the fact that their investigation did

's office. >> we are also get, reports scotland yard is beefing up its team of investigators working the case as well. >> reporter: we have always known there is the possibility this investigation could go further. we have now been able to confirm that. the information commission says that they handed over details to the police of another private investigator that was illegally harvesting information and then selling it on to newspapers. newspapers that are not news international newspapers. among the top newspapers, according to the information commission, "the daily mail," "the daily mirror," those are not news international papers and it does seem now that they, too, may be included as part of the ongoing police investigation. one of the inning things is this is not necessarily phone hacking. this could be something called blagging which is impersonating somebody to try to get personal information about them. that is illegal here and also according to the information commission, corruption. this would be mean payouts basically to get that sort of information illegally. the details
hours and spoke with scotland yard and they say she is still in custody. 43-year-old brooks had top echelon of tabloid journalism here and ran the biggest newspaper group. she resigned on friday and two days later she has been arrested. she has not been charged yet, but again she has been arrested in connection with phone hacking and alleged bribes to police. she resigned friday, two days before he is supposed to appear before a committee. she was arrested on sunday and tuesday she is supposed to testify before this committee side by side with rupert murdoch and james. it's not clear whether she will be able to turn up or there will be restrictions based had on what she can say based on the arrest. that the latest. >> gregg: amy, thank you. >> heather: called the most mor interesting presidential candidates, herman cain a real leader with real solutions. he spoke out about his candidacy and his vision for the country. peter due si reports from washington. >> he is known by 45% of all republicans. coming in third with ballot support behind romney and palin. on the fox news sunday he

meantry session. >> yesterday, scotland yard's number two was forced to design this less than 20 hours after the commissioner himself stepped down. both claim their integrity is intact but staying on would be a distraction amidst intense media coverage of the role police media mail have played here and for hiring a news of the world editor now under arrest at a pr consultant. rebecca brooks who resigned as head of rupert murdoch's newspaper on sunday after she voluntarily went in for questioning. >> the position of rebecca brooks can be simply stated she is not guilty of any criminal offence. the position of the metropolitan police is less easy to understand. >>> government remains politically tainted as well the prime minister david cameron on official business in africa again under pressure to explain why he hired former news of the world editor andy cole son as chief of communications he stepped down in january and arrested last week. >> no one has argued that the work he did in government in any way was inappropriate or bad. he worked well in government, he then left government. >>
to scotland, too? does include the issues such as policing that have evolved in scotland? >> it does extend it to scotland. we were able to accept a number of points. there was one specific point that the scottish administration wanted dealt with. it concerned the information commissioner's report. it will be dealt with by the inquiry because it is such an important part of the work. when it comes to the relationship between politicians and media, this inquiry will be able to go where the evidence leads. >> there were allegations against some offices and the metropolitan police. protecting us and doing a wonderful job and should not be smeared by this? >> that's an incredibly important point police officers put their lives on the line for us every single day. and while, of course, we have to get to the bottom of what went wrong in the met, we shouldn't allow that to undermine the public confidence the people have in the bobby on the beat and the fantastic job they do for us. >> mr. richard burton. >> in response from the question from my right honorable friend, the prime minister said if he
of scotland yard-- sir paul stephenson-- also denied wrongdoing. he said he was embarrassed that he'd hired a former "news of the world" executive, neil wallis, as a public relations consultant. wallis has now been arrested. >> i had no reason to connect wallis with phone hacking. i had no reason to doubt his impropriety. nothing had come to my attention. i had no knowledge of the previous inquiry, and i had no reason to enquire of the previous inquiry, and i had been given assurances by a senior grade chief constable that actually there was nothing new. >> brown: away from the hearings, scotland yard announced today it found no outside involvement in the death of sean hoare, a former "news of the world" reporter who'd been an early whistleblower in the scandal. hoare was found dead monday at his home north of london. more now on today's hearings and the murdoch media empire. we're joined, from london, by john burns of "the new york times," and from new york, by david folkenflik, who covers the media for npr. so, john burns, what struck you most about the murdoch's message today? >> well, i
december this does to david cameron and the british government, to have both the head of scotland yard, the number two at scotland yard, and the director for cameron himself all either resigned or arrested at this point? it seems like the political fallout in britain is still really continuing. >> i think it's all of the pieces that makes the story so darn interesting, tough to look away. the "wall street journal" today suggesting that people like you, people like me, are far too interested in and we are engaging by taking joy in the pain and misery of mr. murdoch and the people that work there. at the same time, if you looked at the front page of the "wall street journal," splash, big story, three more stories inside. you have an editorial saying you're ganging up on us. well, hey, your own paper, the biggest, most important business paper in the world, saw fit to publish four big hard-hitting stories about it. >> right after the chain saw line, which i thought was a great line, while being insulted by it i admired the insulter. in the same paragraph, you get, they want -- they, you a

resign from scotland yard and david cameron cuts short a foreign trip as calls for his resignation appear in the british press. now, most disturbingly, sean hoare, one two of the whistle-blowing journalists that brought it to light was found dead in his home. rebecca brooks was arrested this weekend after resigning as ceo of news corp. she is expected to testify tomorrow. this is not her first time appearing before parliament, the clip i'm showing you is from 2003. watch closely. brooks testifying with andy coulson. coulson went on to become david cameron's spokesman and has since resigned and has been arrested in the scandal. >> can i ask, the one element if you ever pay the bliss for information? >> we have paid police for information in the past, and it's been -- >> will you do it in the put? >> it depends on -- >> within the code and within the law, there is a clear public interest and the same holds for private detectives, subterfuge. >> it's illegal for police officers to receive payments. >> no, no, no. i just said within the law. >> this is not only the beginning of the scandal. i
that is to get the justice department to investigate. scotland yard is under investigation of several thousand names and phone numbers. i'm sure we could be talking to scotland yard and find out whether americans were part of that. >> politicians in the uk have been chastised to are their recent or i guess their past fears of rupert murdoch and not doing anything against the media baron in having so much control. do you think there would be more politicians having come forward to join you in the investigation or at least the intent of an investigation to find out what could be happening here? >> i would hope certainly those of us who represent the tristate area who lost so many citizens in new jersey, we lost about 00 citizens on that fateful day, so for us this is a question of great moment, this is a question of real concern. we have been working with these families over time. we have been seeking justice along the way, and so when bin laden was killed, there was a measurement of justice, but we've got to make sure that these families have their privacy and the sanctity of those moments for
. the fall of scotland yard? britain's beacon of law and order, rocked by allegations of bribery. top brass resigning in disgrace, and today, a stunning breach of security. time to call in sherlock holmes? >>> and death of a whistle blower. sean hoare lived the tabloid life to the limit. drugs, booze, and cell phones. that's how he got his sensati sensational stories. looks like he saved the best one for last. >>> then, news corp. and politicians, we've seen the cozy connection in britain, but here in america, for political contributions, you'll never guess who gets the most murdoch money. >>> back now to our in-depth report, the murdoch hacking scandal and a key question, how deeply involved were the police and exactly why did they shut down their original phone hacking investigation back in 2007? my guests tonight worked with murdoch as senior editor for the times of london and has insider's knowledge of the close or perhaps too close relationship between the police and the tabloids. welcome, nicholas waptchak. i want to get to the hearing, but this was fascinating to watch. >> i can't th
hacking scandal as james murdoch, that's the son of rue pert comes under scrutiny. scotland yard was urged to open a criminal investigation into claims the news corp executive lied if his testimony to parliament. this a day after two former news of the world executives accused the younger murdoch of getting "mistaken evidence." you may remember watson from tuesday's temperature known as the tormenter in chief. he was the one hammering away at both murdoches about exactly what they knew and when they knew it, a bone he's picked on for more than two years now. tom watson joins us from london. you say this is the most significant moment in two years of phone hacking investigations. and it all centers on an e-mail involving an exnews of the world reporter. explain. >> yes, the significance of this is the top team at news of the world and news international are fragmenting. and for the former lawyer to accuse him of lying to parliament is serious itself. if james murdoch disputes it, and if the lawyers account is accurate, it shows that james murdoch knew there was other criminal wrongdoing in
conservative local authorities i can congratulate in scotland. i wish everyone who is going to take part the best of luck. >> speaker, would the prime minister confirm that all witnesses to all aspects of >> the british house of commons is in summer recess. prime minister's questions returns in september. to watch events surrounding the phone hacking scandal, visit our website at c-span.org. on tuesday, news corp's ceo rupert murdoch and his son james marc are scheduled to testify before a british parliamentary committee. they will be asked about phone hacking by news of the world and other news corp. holdings. rebekah brooks is also scheduled to appear, but due to arrest earlier today, her appearance is in question. like coverage of that hearing begins tuesday at 9:30 a.m. eastern on c-span3, c-span radio, and act c-span.org. our coverage continues with former british prime minister gordon browns' first major speech to the house of commons since resigning. he talks about his decision not to launch an inquiry into allegations of phone hacking by news international. it also include remark
the beginning, too. much of the investigation has focused on how cozy this relationship was between scotland yard -- >> do you guys want us to stick around? >> stevenson, the scotland yard chief who has resigned said he's embarrassed by the fact he hired neil wallace to be a media consultant. >> i should say in terms of news for american audience there were some very strong denials here by both from rupert and james murdoch that there was any evidence that 9/11 victims in the united states had their phones hacked. that's important because that's what the fbi is investigating. that is probably the most serious allegation relating to news corp. in the united states that's out there and they couldn't be more emphatic that they've seen no evidence of that and they have no evidence of that. now, again, they've made some pretty strong denials in the past. we'll have to wait and see this play out. but it is worth noting that on that front in familiar they were pretty emphatic. the other point and michelle referred to this is, you know, rupert murdoch was asked point-blank, do you intend to resign a
to scotland yard officers by the news of the world. could that be construed as an illegal foreign payment under the foreign corrupt practices act. >> the way this is unfolding thus far nothing seems like it's beyond the realm of possibility. robert, let me follow up with you on something that michael raised. it's unproven. it's a single allegation. everybody wants to know whether 9/11 victims were hacked. here's what the spokeswoman for news corp. told "the wall street journal" about the justice department's investigation, we have not seen any evidence to suggest there was any hacking of 9/11 victim phones nor has any one corroborated clearly what are very serious allegations. the story arose when an unidentified person speculated to the "daily mirror" if that happened. that paper printed the anonymous speculation which has mushroomed into the broader media with no substantiation. that's true, but you think about the milly dowler case where the 13-year-old teenager has been murdered and her voice mail is hacked, one wonders if that will be proven. >> that's true. michael is right to say i
rating. >>> elsewhere, scotland yard said it's made a seventh arrest in connection with the phone hacking scandal surrounding the "news of the world" tabloid. there are calls here in the united states for investigation of reports that victims of the september 11th attacks also were targeted. new york congressman peter king, chairman of the house homeland security committee, is weighing in. >> i am asking the fbi to investigate it, to find out what the facts are. now, a lot has come out about hacking. we have reports that they were hacking into phones after 9/11 and to 9/11 victims. and since so much else has come out, i think it's important that this be investigated and tracked down. if it turns out not to be true, then that's great. on the other hand, there's too much out there right now for this not to be investigated. >> the controversy led newscorp, parent company of "news of the world" to pull its bid for british sky broadcasting yesterday, and now there are questions about the future of the media empire built by rupert murdoch. nbc's stephanie gosk has more. >> order! order! >> repo
. there was a bribery scandal. the head of scotland yard is going to resign. i think they are going to try to bring it to the united states. i don't know that anything has been done here. somebody might have hacked into the 9/11 folks. i don't think the wall street journal had anything to do with that. i don't know that any of that went on here and as of right now, it's still in london. a lot of folks want to bring it here. >> what is your opinion on that, ed? >> other than the potential hacking into the 9/11 victims, i'm not sure pat is wrong on this. he may be right. the one thing we don't want it to become, speaking as a democratic progressive. we don't want it to be a witch hunt on murdock. we don't need that. >> right. >> the story is bad enough on its own. >> andrea, let me invite you in on this. we are expecting testimony from murdock and his son tomorrow. that's going to be a circus-like scene. it's unclear who had connection to all of this. >> i think they all have connections. anyone who has lived or worked there knows. peter you spent a lot of time in london, you know the close connectio
the same issue at hand and the third is now the penetration into british politics, head of scotland yard resigning and david cameron 163 questions in one session and the most speculative, i think, what kirsten was saying, most american audience, can the obama justice department or somebody else find some way into damaging or subpoenaing the american part of this operation, which has no linkage i know of to anything happening in britain. >> that's pretty farfetched, number four. i can tell you i was impressed. the guardian actually did a story how it was, i won't say the word on tv, but cluster-- and interesting, also, talked about the fact that bbc and cnn were trying to make as much hay as they can, because they're afraid of the competition and they really wanted to slam down the competition. i thought that was very interesting. the new york times came up with something interesting, this is the best kind of story we don't know how it's going to end. that gets to the personal issue, this wouldn't be such a big story if it wasn't so much for a lot of the-- its larger than life characters.
that you were present at a meeting with scotland yard when police officers provided you with evidence that your newspaper was interfering with justice. he particularly mentions the name of another senior executive and at the meeting a man from metropolitan police, that "news of the world" were guilty of interference and attempt to credit -- discredit a police officer and his wife. can you tell us more about that meeting? >> well, i can tell you something about it but it's -- i was asked to recall a meeting that i had at scotland yard in 2002. i was asked recently, i think by channel 4, about the story you're referring to. my information -- my recollection of that meeting was entirely different. my recollection of the meeting was on a completely different subject so i'm only going on what i was told by channel 4. they say it's a meeting in november but that's what was put to me. i checked my diary as much as possible and there was no meeting in november. however, there was a subsequent meeting and in very early january, so it may be that it was that meeting. that was not my recollectio

empire. rebekah brooks arrested over the weekend. and has scotland yard resigning over the failures in the investigation. jeffrey kofman joins us this morning from london. good morning. >> reporter: good morning to you. it's incredible. this scandal unfolding with lightning speed. rupert murdoch's number two arrested. it's fair to say, the air around murdoch himself is getting awfully thin. will where will all of this stop? rupert murdoch has often said he looked on rebekah brooks as his daughter. just a week ago, he indicated that saving her was as important to saving his global empire. but this crisis well beyond his control. brooks, former editor of his now-closed "news of the world," became so toxic, on sunday, she resigned. on sunday she was arrested and questioned about alleged criminal activity while she was at the helm. >> it's very unusual for somebody to be arresteteby appointment on sunday. there could be operational reasons for that. maybe they're going to arrest somebody else today. >> reporter: as the news tightens, the focus turns to his murdoch's son, james. he is ac

official, like a scotland yard office, or news corp hid bribes by falsifying books and records and that latter possibility is really the more likely one, because almost no company has disclosed they are paying bribes. somewhere in news corp there will be liability if you hid bribes that, were, in fact, paid. >> in terms of exposure to the american part of the company, am i right in thinking that if that is proven if there were bribes being paid, either anonymously or in fake names, whatever it may be, if it were paid by news international, a british company, does that still impact on the american part of the business? >> there are two distinctions here, if the bribes are paid by news international, i think it is unlikely that u.s. prosecutors would want to go after bribery to british governmental officials. i think they would still be interested in the books and records of news corp. news international is conso consolidated with news corp. and those records fail to disclosed there were bribes paid. and $8 million in stock value has disappeared over the last couple of weeks. the
